This sprint triathlon, consisting of a 4-mile paddle, a 14-mile mountain bike leg, and a 4 mile trail run, will take participants along the east shores of Flagstaff Lake and into the heart of Carrabassett Valley, traversing some of Western Maine’s most scenic terrain.

Participants may choose to enter solo ($60) or as a team ($100). Maine Huts & Trails has also extended a discounted lodging add-on ($50), good for a one night stay in their eco-lodges Friday before the race. Meals are included.
